PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 6, 2018
“The WAC Is A Soldier, Too” (TV 277) is a 1950s episode from The Big Picture, a series produced by the Army Pictorial Center. This episode takes viewers on a tour of the recently opened Women’s Army Corps (WAC) training center at Fort McClellan in Anniston, Alabama and shows the preparation the women receive. The episode opens with a shot of Sgt. Stuart Queen (00:59), who discusses the new WAC training center. An aerial view of the new center (01:29) reveals the nearly two dozen buildings that make up the campus. Service men and women attend the dedication ceremony (02:00), where General Matthew B. Ridgway speaks on the importance of the Women’s Army Corps (02:22). He unveils a plaque as part of the dedication (03:42. New WAC recruits arrive at the Anniston train station. The women, also known as WACs, are issued uniforms (04:47), which they then try on; they are fitted for shoes (05:34) and their uniforms are tailored. WACs receive required vaccines (06:11). The women are then interviewed for specialty areas and courses of study. A woman wakes up in her private room in the barracks (06:52). WACs stand at attention (07:30) for roll call, which is followed by a morning march as the WAC band plays (08:03). WACs participate in drill training (09:00) and attend a class on individual standards and social concepts (09:54). Women train on typewriters in a clerk typist and stenographer course (10:37). When not in class, the women relax in one of the center’s lounges (11:44). WACs study as they participate in the center’s Officer Candidate School (12:06). A woman presents on Staff Organization (12:56). Another woman works in the kitchen as a KP (13:07); WACs go through the food line at the center’s cafeteria. WACs wash laundry and hang clothes to dry. Trainees attend a callisthenic class (14:27). The WAC center features recreational opportunities for the WACs: some women golf (14:57) on the 18-hole golf course, others play cards in game room (15:25), and some look at clothes at the Post Exchange (16:04). The new center features a beauty shop (16:18). The 14th Army Band, the only WAC band (17:13), plays the WAC march by Jane Douglas. WACs stand at attention as the band plays during the call of retreat (19:40). The WAC Service Club hosts a dance (21:58) with music provided by the WAC military band; service men and women dance together. At the barracks kitchen (25:17), WACs chat together before bedtime. A WAC member plays “Taps” (25:48). The episode ends with an overview of the WAC center and features a montage of shots of women in uniform performing various duties, including teaching in classrooms, assisting dentists and doctors, and performing secretarial duties.

The Women's Army Corps (WAC) was the women's branch of the United States Army. It was created as an auxiliary unit, the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps(WAAC) on 15 May 1942 by Public Law 554, and converted to an active duty status in the Army of the United States as the WAC on 1 July 1943. Its first director was Oveta Culp Hobby, a prominent woman in Texas society. The WAC was disbanded in 1978, and all units were integrated with male units.

BOUGAINVILLE CAMPAIGN "BATTLE FOR HILL 700" 145th INFANTRY / 35th DIVISION COMBAT FILM 22535
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 8, 2018
This silent film shows the battle for "Hill 700" starting on March 9, 1944. Depicted is the counter-attack by the 145th Infantry of the 37th Division to recapture the hill which had been taken in the early morning. The Japanese objective was to break through to the strategic beachhead on Empress Augusta Bay. Mortars (9:30) and light tanks and halftracks from the 754th Tank Battalion provided fire support and the battle continued through March 13th, when the troops regained the summit of Hill 700. Some of the difficult to watch footage in this film includes bodies seen at 15:40 in jungle trenches, evacuation of wounded at 16:00, body bags 17:30, and the burying Japanese dead. At 5;28-5:58, a Japanese soldier who was believed to be "playing dead" is shot.

The Bougainville Campaign was a series of land and naval battles of the Pacific campaign of World War II between Allied forces and the Empire of Japan. It was part of Operation Cartwheel, the Allied grand strategy in the South Pacific. The campaign took place in the Northern Solomons in two phases. The first phase, in which American troops invaded and held the perimeter around the beachhead at Torokina, lasted from November 1943 through November 1944. The second phase, in which primarily Australian troops went on the offensive, mopping up pockets of starving, isolated but still-determined Japanese, lasted from November 1944 until August 1945, when the last Japanese on the island surrendered. Operations during the final phase of the campaign saw the Australian forces advance north towards the Bonis Peninsula and south towards the main Japanese stronghold around Buin, although the war ended before these two enclaves were completely destroyed.

THE ENEMY JAPAN PART 2 "THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN" FANATICAL ENEMY PROPAGANDA FILM 63594a
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 11, 2018
Presented by the United States Navy during WWII, THE ENEMY JAPAN presented the American public with a look at their new adversary. In this, Part Two of the three part series entitled “The People,” is narrated by former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Joseph C. Grew. The film portrays the Japanese as a people trained from childhood to completely commit themselves to the Japanese Empire and its causes. The film begins with Grew giving an introduction (00:41), then shows footage of Japan’s Emperor Hirohito (01:51) as he rides a horse in a military parade. The Japanese military marches down a city street lined with cheering people (02:27). The film shows Tokyo (02:53), including Tokyo Station, a Mitsubishi office building, another train station, and a subway station—all part of the modern look of the country. Bankers sell cash to customers (04:15) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s floor bustles with transactions (04:43). At a theatre, Japanese men and women watch a play celebrating the Nazis (05:45), further promoting the idea of total war. Grew tells viewers that the Japanese government censors the media to perpetuate the national narrative, and there is footage of Japanese newspapers printing papers (06:47) and members of the military delivering news via radio broadcasts. The strength of Japan’s military comes from the peasant population; the film shows a peasant woman working on a farm (07:34) and other peasants working in a kitchen, building huts, and harvesting grain and rice. Men chop wood (09:06), as lumbar is a critical resource for the war effort. In an old traditional town (09:45), each home doubles as a miniature factory, where families produce a variety of goods. A family has tea in their kitchen (10:25). Grew accuses the Japanese of being ungrateful of the help the U.S. provided after the 1923 earthquake; the film provides footage of what appears to be destruction from that earthquake (10:38). Women work in a city factory producing textiles (11:16), and men build engines on an assembly line (11:55). Japanese participate in a Shinto event (12:38) and visit a Shinto shrine. Young boys dress in military uniforms (13:47) and participate in drills. The film then shows footage of the aftermath of a Japanese bombing of China (14:30), with Chinese people trying to escape the destruction. Japanese students study and paint Japanese characters (15:07). Japanese soldiers drill (15:52) and train with rifles. Young men attend the School of Military Government and Colonial Administration (16:55), where they learn how to govern an occupied people. Japanese soldiers stand for inspection (18:30), then they train with guns and in hand-to-hand combat. The film concludes with footage of Japanese soldiers marching in a military parade (19:25).

THE BIG PICTURE 6th INFANTRY DIVISION in WWII & OCCUPATION OF SOUTH KOREA 1944-1947 63684
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 10, 2018
“The 6th Infantry Division” (TV 214) is an episode of The Big Picture television series that showcases the famous division, also known as the “Sight Seein’ Sixth,” as it fights in New Guinea, the Philippines. The episode also features a bit of propaganda—an “interview” of a U.S. soldier posing as a Chinese communist private. The episode begins with Sgt. James Mansfield’s introduction to the segment (00:50) and Col. William W. Quinn’s promise of a rare interview with the Chinese soldier. The episode then cuts to 1947 Korea where a Korean man prepares food and coffee in a kitchen as men from the famed 6th Infantry Division take a break from the Korean conflict (02:16). One of the men tells the story of the division. The story of the Sight Seein’ Sixth begins in Oahu, where a woman performs a hula dance (04:17); the division prepares to depart for New Guinea. In 1944 New Guinea, the men of the 6th train and march along a beach (04:50); this is followed by footage of the country’s forests. The soldiers make camp in the bush (05:45) before moving to Maffin Bay where they receive supplies (06:12). The troops move through the jungle (06:35), and soon take fire. A firefight with Japanese forces erupts at Lone Tree Hill, considered the bloodiest ten days in New Guinea. The episode shows a dead Japanese soldier (07:16) and men of the 6th evacuating their wounded brothers. The division pushes farther up the hill using guns and flame throwers to clear Japanese positions, and they eventually take Lone Tree Hill. The soldiers wade through the surf to board ships (08:20); they make land in Sansapor (09:03), march along the beach, and capture a number of Japanese soldiers. Engineers use heavy equipment to clear jungle and build on airstrip on Sansapor (09:55). A squadron of B-25 Mitchell bombers fly in formation (10:31), then strike targets in Borneo and the Philippines. LSTs are loaded in preparation for the invasion of the Philippines, and the men of the 6th wait with supplies for the invasion to begin (11:27). Aboard a ship heading for the Philippines, the men of the 6th have a moment to relax (12:15). The calm ends as the American ships fire on Japanese kamikazes (12:46) then fire heavy artillery and rockets at targets on the coastline of the Luzon. The Battle of Luzon (13:50) begins, as soldiers make their way to shore despite Japanese artillery fire. The men of the 6th Infantry move into the hills, assisted by U.S. artillery. The episode then shows Munoz being “softened” by U.S. airstrikes (15:25). Japanese tanks and infantry attack (15:43), and the U.S. fights back with artillery and tanks. The fighting continues into the night (16:19), but by the next day, the Japanese troops flee their positions. U.S. troops climb up and down the island’s hills (17:35), engaging in intense firefights and taking heavy casualties: footage shows a number of wounded soldiers. The 6th Infantry then takes Bonsai Hill (18:30), capturing a number of Japanese soldiers (18:55). The Air Force bombs the terrain (19:13), allowing the troops and tanks to move along “Highway 4.” The episode shows the slow movement as the Americans make their way through jungle. The soldiers attack more Japanese strongholds (20:27), finally forcing the Japanese to surrender (20:42). There is good footage of Japanese POWs (20:56). The episode then cuts back to the kitchen scene in Korea to conclude the story of the Sight Seein’ Sixth. The episode finishes with Quinn’s propaganda interview of the fake Chinese communist private (21:51), who is actually a sergeant of the U.S. Army from Honolulu.

Royal Marine recruits who hope to wear the famous green beret have been put through their paces on Exercise Final Thrust. The recruits were asked to attack Scraesdon Fort in Cornwall, a 19th-century garrison formerly built to protect Devonport Naval Base, and now used as a key training location for the Royal Marines.

All Army - Combat Pistol footage
U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit


Published on Mar 5, 2019
The U.S. Army Small Arms Championships (All Army) is a comprehensive live-fire training event that tests Soldiers ability to employ both primary and secondary weapon systems, problem solve, and think critically under the stresses created by competition. While the elements and spirit of competition are important, the Army's critical intent of the competition in arms program is to develop marksmanship skills at the entry and intermediate level and recognize superior skill at the highest levels, all while raising the standards of marksmanship and increasing lethality across the entire force.

Each year in March, the All Army is hosted by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Georgia. This week-long training brings over 260 Soldiers from across the United States, and from all components: active duty, Reserve, National Guard and ROTC, to the base to compete in rifle, pistol and multigun courses of fire.

The video b-roll packages shows raw footage from various combat pistol matches during the All Army 2018.

Stay tuned for coverage on the #AllArmy2019!

Tunnel Destruction (1969) US Army Training Film; Vietnam War Tunnel Rats
Old Movies Reborn


Published on Jun 14, 2017
"SHOWS HOW TUNNEL TEAMS DESTROY ENEMY EARTHEN TUNNELS EMPLOYING CS, GRENADES, CONVENTIONAL MILITARY EXPLOSIVES, SPECIAL PURPOSE CHARGES, AND THE XM242 LIQUID EXPLOSIVE DEMOLITION KIT."

US Army Training Film TF5-4131

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunnel_rat

The tunnel rats were American, Australian and New Zealand soldiers who performed underground search and destroy missions during the Vietnam War. Later, similar teams were used by the Red Army during the Soviet war in Afghanistan.

Vietnam War

In the course of the war, the Viet Cong created extensive underground complexes. Whenever troops would uncover a tunnel, tunnel rats were sent in to kill any hiding enemy soldiers and to plant explosives to destroy the tunnels. A tunnel rat was equipped with only a standard issue .45 caliber pistol, a bayonet and a flashlight, although most tunnel rats were allowed to choose another pistol with which to arm themselves. The tunnels were very dangerous, with numerous booby traps and enemies lying in wait. Often there were flooded U-bends in the tunnels to trap gas. Guards manned holes on the sides of tunnels through which spears could be thrust, impaling a crawling intruder. Not only were there human enemies, but also dangerous creatures, such as snakes (including venomous ones), rats, spiders, scorpions, and ants. Black-Bearded Tomb Bats (Taphozous melanopogon) and Lesser Dawn Bats (Eonycteris spelaea) roosted in the tunnels and were a harmless nuisance if awoken.

Due to the confined space, the tunnel rats disliked the intense muzzle blast of the comparatively large .45 caliber round, which would often leave them temporarily deaf, and it was not uncommon for them to use whatever handgun they might find. The Soviet-made pistols the enemy carried were particular favourites, but they were rare, and the soldiers would often have someone at home send them a civilian pistol or revolver. Among the favorites were the smaller German Luger or less-common double action Walther pistols, both chambered in 9 mm. Many of these were brought home by American troops returning from World War II. Others would trade their pistols for revolvers used by other personnel. Many used improvised suppressors on their pistols to further reduce the noise. A particularly favored weapon was a specially modified Smith & Wesson Model 29 known as the "quiet special purpose revolver". Unlike the standard Model 29, which fires a .44 Magnum cartridge, the quiet special purpose revolver instead shot a .410 shotgun shell. This cartridge was far less loud than the .45 caliber. In addition, the revolver lacked as much recoil as the M1911, was lighter, more useful in a tight, claustrophobic space such as a tunnel, and very compact as well.

Tunnel rats were generally, but not exclusively, men of smaller stature in order to fit in the narrow tunnels. Mangold and Penycate claimed that the tunnel rats were almost exclusively White or Hispanic soldiers, and the majority of American Latinos were Puerto Rican or Mexican American. Such tactics came to prominence following their successful application in January 1966 during a combined US-Australian action against the Củ Chi tunnels in Binh Duong Province, known as Operation Crimp.

Afghanistan

Afghanistan has an extensive series of historic tunnels used for transporting water, the kariz, and during the 1979--1989 Soviet war in Afghanistan, such tunnels were used by Mujahideen fighters. The Soviet 40th Army had their own tunnel rats, who were tasked with flushing people out of the tunnels, then going through the tunnels to disarm booby traps and kill those who remained. Meanwhile, the United States Marine Corps and the Royal Marines are involved in similar work during the current ongoing war in Afghanistan...

Can LSD and magic mushrooms help win wars? This Marine officer says ‘yes’
By: J.D. Simkins   18 hours ago


Sanctioned psychedelic drug use as a medical or psychological treatment method is gaining ground as part of today’s hallucinogenic renaissance.

Recent scientific studies approved by the Food and Drug Administration have yielded positive cognitive results when administering “microdoses" of the drugs lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, and psilocybin, the alkaloid in hallucinogenic mushrooms.

But could this new wave of unorthodox treatment ever find its way into the ranks of the military? According to an article by Marine Maj. Emre Albayrak that was published in the February issue of the Marine Corps Gazette, it certainly should.

Microdosing, which refers to administering a minuscule quantity of the drug in order to avoid hallucinations or debilitating effects in the patient, is already being used by “scientists, Silicon Valley executives, biologists, biohackers, and others” to achieve a mental edge, Albayrak writes.

Administering in such doses has the potential to “significantly heighten alertness, creativity, and problem solving."

Today’s service members, especially those in the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance communities, are faced with the nearly-insurmountable task of analyzing a rapidly-growing tidal wave of analytical data that, with today’s advances in technology, will only continue to expose cognitive shortfalls, the author writes.

Personnel in these professions have made every attempt to stem that tide, employing approved pre-workout supplements, tobacco, caffeine or any other legal substances designed to raise a sense of alertness or boost productivity.

But an inability to process “superhuman” amounts of information in a community in which “one percent gains provide significant advantages” on the battlefield necessitates a better solution, Albayrak suggests.

Enter LSD and magic mushrooms.

“Like most hallucinogens, LSD mimics the effects of serotonin (a mood regulator),” the author says, and activates enhanced mental acuity in the areas of learning and memory.

Additionally, the drug commonly referred to as “acid” can decrease blood circulation to the part of the brain that instigates periods of mind wandering.

And while the use of performance-enhancing drugs like Ritalin or Adderall to combat the dreaded attention lapse is well-documented, both drugs “are amphetamines and carry a variety of side effects,” including kidney failure, rhabdomyolysis and addiction risk, Albayrak says.

With microdoses of psychedelic drugs, meanwhile, military personnel can potentially “connect seemingly unconnected pieces of information and create revolutionary new solutions."

Beyond the scientific research evidence emerging from institutions like Johns Hopkins, NYU or Yale, additional proof of LSD’s benefits, the author claims, lies in the number of successful minds who have employed the drug for its cognitive rewards.

This group includes “Nobel Prize–winning scientists admitting their use of small doses of LSD to boost thought,” Albayrak says, as well as the late CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, who called dropping acid "a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin.”

The military should join the growing list of psychedelic beneficiaries, the author writes, to become “stronger, faster and smarter than our adversaries."

No one wants a level playing field in combat, after all.

“World Anti-Doping Agency doping control officers are not taking samples after missions to ban Marines from ‘competition,'” Albayrak writes. “Our enemies are already seeking an edge over us through PEDs.”

The chances of the military signing off on the use of psychedelic performance enhancers are slim, but with societal attitudes toward psychedelics trending in the direction they are, it’s worth a discussion.

Just last year, another round of test results using a different psychedelic party drug continued to show promise as a treatment option for patients with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder.

The study, published in the Lancet Psychiatry journal, found that MDMA, the main ingredient in ecstasy or molly, dramatically reduced PTSD symptoms in study participants.

In a follow-up one month after the second therapy session, researchers found that symptoms of PTSD were effectively eliminated in 68 percent of the study’s participants.

Therapy, coupled with MDMA, has the capability to “reduce fear and defensiveness, enhance communication and introspection, and increase empathy and compassion, enhancing the therapeutic process,” according to a press release from the California-based nonprofit, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

In response to continued success, MDMA was given “breakthrough therapy” status in 2017 by the FDA. Demonstrating significant efficacy and safety in an additional round of testing is expected to result in full FDA approval by 2021.

In a poll of nearly 1,400 Military Times readers, 87 percent said they were in favor of granting veterans access to MDMA.

These developments have not been lost on active-duty personnel.

“Though the idea is radical, it must be understood that this is neither a sideways attempt to allow Marines to ingest illicit substances nor to be mistaken as a half-baked attempt to recreate previously failed paranormal experiments,” the author writes.

"This is a serious foray and discussion about considering the use of cognitive PEDs to increase productiv- ity, creativity, problem-solving ability, and flow.

U.S. ARMY RECONDO SCHOOL FORT CARSON, COLORADO 1960s RECRUITING MOVIE 26404
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Mar 19, 2019
RECONDO is a short U.S. military film, most likely from the 1960s, that shows viewers the degree of training that the men of Recondo school go through at the school’s training camp near Fort Carson, CO. The film opens with footage of men moving through jungle terrain on reconnaissance patrol, presumably in Vietnam. The film then cuts to a shot of men at training camp, repelling down a cliff face (01:10) and sliding down zip lines. Recondo instructors discuss training at the camp (02:30). Sergeant First Class James Griffith, lead instructor at the Recondo school, talks with his men during the meeting. Footage shows men fighting in Vietnam; then the film returns to a classroom at the training camp, dubbed Camp Red Devil, where students sit for orientation (04:21). The film presents viewers with shots of the nearby terrain, where men participate in a “mountain walk” up the side of a mountain lightly covered in snow (06:55). Men climb up rocks as they summit the mountain. Next, the men repel down a cliff (08:30). Harald “Pop” Sorensen, a former Olympic ski jumping coach, trains the men to repel. The trainees put on their gloves, harnesses, and then go over the edge. An instructor demonstrates how to tie appropriate knots. Later, the men slide down a zipline from atop a cliff. Men exercise to build endurance (14:25). The film shows several of the instructors teaching the Recondo trainees in the classroom. The trainees go out on a training patrol (16:35). Griffith smokes a cigarette next to the camp’s barracks (18:18). Men practice patrol maneuvers in a riverbed, climbing up and out of the steep banks. Footage shows trainees looking at maps, repelling down a cliff, and shooting rifles. The men participate in a convoy attack training (21:30). Recondo trainees move across the terrain back to base, attempting to avoid an “enemy” patrol force. Colonel Gordon addresses the Recondo class during the graduation ceremony (24:55). The film concludes by alternating between the men graduating from the training program and footage of the fighting in Vietnam.

Recondo is an American military term for RECONnaissance and commanDO for highly specialized infantry training or a graduate of a Recondo School who led small, heavily armed long-range reconnaissance teams that patrol deep in enemy-held territory.

Report to Congress on U.S. Special Operations Forces

April 2, 2019 9:12 AM


The following is the March 28, 2019 Congressional Research Service report, U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF): Background and Issues for Congress.

From the report

Special Operations Forces (SOF) play a significant role in U.S. military operations and, in recent years, have been given greater responsibility for planning and conducting worldwide counterterrorism operations. U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has about 70,000 Active Duty, National Guard, and reserve personnel from all four services and Department of Defense (DOD) civilians assigned to its headquarters, its four service component commands, and eight sub-unified commands.

In 2013, based on a request from USSOCOM (with the concurrence of Geographic and Functional Combatant Commanders and the Military Service Chiefs and Secretaries), the Secretary of Defense assigned command of the Theater Special Operations Commands (TSOCs) to USSOCOM. USSOCOM now has the responsibility to organize, train, and equip TSOCs. While USSOCOM is now responsible for the organizing, training, and equipping of TSOCs, the Geographic Combatant Commands will continue to have operational control over the TSOCs. Because the TSOCs are now classified as sub-unified commands, the services are responsible to provide non-SOF support to the TSOCs in the same manner in which they provide support to the Geographic Combatant Command headquarters.

The current Unified Command Plan (UCP) stipulates USSOCOM responsibility for synchronizing planning for global operations to combat terrorist networks. This focus on planning limits its ability to conduct activities designed to deter emerging threats, build relationships with foreign militaries, and potentially develop greater access to foreign militaries. USSOCOM is proposing changes that would, in addition to current responsibilities, include the responsibility for synchronizing the planning, coordination, deployment, and, when directed, the employment of special operations forces globally and will do so with the approval of the Geographic Combatant Commanders, the services, and, as directed, appropriate U.S. government agencies.

Further, the proposed changes would give broader responsibility to USSOCOM beyond counterterrorism activities, to include activities against other threat networks. In August 2016, the Obama Administration assigned USSOCOM the leading role in coordinating DOD’s efforts to counter WMDs, a mission previously assigned to U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). USSOCOM is also the DOD proponent for Security Force Assistance and recently was assigned the mission to field a transregional Military Information Support Operations (MISO) capability.

USSOCOM’s FY2020 budget request is for $13.8 billion, and USSOCOM has requested a force structure of 66,553 military and 6,651 civilian personnel.

A potential issue for Congress is the future of USSOCOM and U.S. SOF.
